    White House says Obama won’t pardon illegals

    By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Tuesday, November 29, 2016

    The White House’s top immigration staffer said President Obama won’t pardon illegal immigrants before the end of his term, dashing hopes of activists who had pleaded for Mr. Obama to use his powers to shield hundreds of thousands of Dreamers from deportation.


    White House Domestic Policy Council Director Cecilia Munoz, in a podcast interview with the Center for Migration Studies, said they’ve concluded a pardon wouldn’t apply to immigration cases — and wouldn’t be a permanent solution anyway.


    “It’s not an answer here,” she said.


    The decision will be a severe disappointment to immigrant-rights activists, who had rallied this month to demand the president use his pardon powers en masse.

    They pointed to mass pardons for Vietnam war draft dodgers and Confederate troops after the Civil War as precedent and said the same principle could be used on more than 740,000 Dreamers — young adult illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, and whom Mr. Obama granted a deportation amnesty under his 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.


    “President Obama has the power of pardons that he can use to protect all DACA enrollees,” the advocates said in their statement calling the rally.

    Mr. Obama had initially been coy when asked in the days after the election whether he could do more to protect Dreamers from deportation during a Trump administration.

    Mr. Munoz, though, said they’ve concluded a pardon doesn’t apply.


    “I know people are hoping that pardon authority is a way to protect people. It’s ultimately not for a couple reasons. One is that pardon authority is generally designed for criminal violations, not civil. But also it doesn’t confer legal status. Only Congress can do that. So ultimately it wouldn’t protect a single soul from deportation,” she said in the podcast interview.

    Our laws work well when they're enforced. Enforce US immigration laws. Trump will do it. Get ready because it's going to happen fast.

    The answer is they go back to their President in Mexico and solve THEIR problems on their soil. Not ours, and not with our money!

    Go fight for your rights on your soil.

    The illegal parents are the guardians and custodians of their minor children...not US taxpayers. Deport the whole family.

    No illegal alien should be able to receive government benefits on behalf of a US citizen.

    Do not reward, do not detain...deport within 24 hours.

    Okay, I agree that is a very sad picture of a crying little girl that may tug at the strings of one's heart.
    But I'm quite sure crying little boys an girls can be found across the country when a child's parents are found guilty and hauled off to jail/prison when caught and convicted of car theft, drug sales, murder, rape, identity theft or a number of other crimes. The fact that the child is sad has nothing to do with the adults criminal behavior. It's a shame, but too bad. When your parent or guardian breaks the law, there are consequences and you will be left to cry after they're torn from you. This country cannot simply let every criminal free just because the criminal left behind a crying child. Maybe the criminals should have thought about their loved ones before committing the illegal act. And any parent in a foreign country that sent their child to the US alone should be happy to have that child back home through mandated deportation. Either way you toss it, the law is broken and consequences are a part of life. I'm sure me and my family would cry if we had to face such a fate. But we are law abiding citizens.
